04:46 - Guib @deadone: I much prefer Unquestionable Presence.
04:33 - deadone I would rather take Atheist over Death. Piece of Time is riff heaven.
03:13 - LeKiwi Not everyone loves death metal, Marcel ;) I, for one, would take Death's proggier era over their death metal one any day.
03:12 - ScreamingSteelUS SBG was actually one of my first death metal albums. I bought it before I really had a tolerance for dm, much less a taste for it, so for a long time I thought very little of it. I had to revisit it after I had an ear for it.

"Hell Destroyer" is already the 4th album of a really good but unfortunately not so famous band from the USA, Cage. Cage plays Power Metal but not in the spirit of the European one (at least not a lot), at the opposite the band plays a real Thrashy Power which will remind you the American killers who are Iced Earth. If you're bored by the European Power and want something violent but of course melodic, you'll have to follow my words and try to find as soon as possible this really nice release.
If you like high-pitched vocals, heavy riffs and double bass drums, you'll have to check "Hell Destroyer" because this album will be a really good surprise which will please all the Metalheads who like bands like Iced Earth. It's maybe not something really new but believe me it works and the band perfectly knew how to mix the anger of the US Power Metal with the epic spirit of some bands like Rhapsody. As you can already understand, "Hell Destroyer" is violent on a side but also has some really epic melodies in the spirit of Rhapsody without being "too much" (expect with the lyrics maybe). The melodies are all hyper catchy like on "I Am The King" and I think that all the people who like good Heavy Metal and Power will love this release.
The performance of the musicians is as good as the production of the album. I discovered Sean Peck with this album but I can tell you that he is a great singer who can sing with a really high voice like with a nice loud and deep one and I can even tell you that he could be a perfect singer for Iced Earth (a lot better than Tim Owens). The recording is perfect and you'll be able to hear all the instruments perfectly, plus the album is a concept album with some little breaks and speeches there and there and except that you'll have to be a fan of Kings and Dragons to really enjoy the lyrics, I have nothing to say here.
"Hell Destroyer" is highly recommended to all the people who like US Power Metal. This release is a great surprise for me and I will have a look on all their other releases as soon as possible! Fans of Iced Earth and Rhapsody don't miss this "Hell Destroyer", you can be sure that you'll be deliciously surprised. Cage is a name that we will have to remember now!
I found satanic subliminal backmasking message in the heavy metal band from USA - CAGE. It is in the CD release HELL DESTROYER - released in 2007 - track no. 10 - Cremation of care. If you play the song backwards you can hear the satanic message: "Rise master. Hail mighty satan! - 4x, We await your arrival. Deliver unto us armageddon."
